Let's say I'm worried a company is going to patent something and later block a project I enjoy.
I would love to be able to pay a small fee to ensure that archive.org caches the page immediately so that later I can use this as evidence from an authorative source that the webpage said what it did.
The problem with the web is that it is so easily deletable. Offering a way to record what is said and by whom is a valuable service that could fund the entire project.
If this creates the worry of a 2 tier service then there are other ways to investigate funding. Certainly I think there's scope for a business to provide this service but I think at least if archive.org offered it then the charitable side would benefit.
p.s. Am I posting in the right place? This one-big-forum thread I find quite confusing!
